According to journalist Claudio Raimondi, Carlo Ancelotti has said Moise Kean can leave Everton as Juventus sniff around the striker.
Calciomercato supply Raimondi’s claims, and state that the Toffees boss has said ‘yes’ over a deal which sees Adrien Rabiot arrive in a swap deal.
Interestingly, Il Bianconero revealed that Ancelotti wants Rabiot at Goodison Park as soon as possible, so perhaps there is some truth in this.
However, Raimondi adds that Everton are also trying to get Merih Demiral from Juventus as part of this deal.
Sadly for the Toffees, Juventus do not want to sell the Turkey international, who they think can be an important player for them now and in the future.
It was Juventus who sold Kean to Everton for £29 million back in August 2019, so it’s odd to see them want him back so soon after offloading him.
In our view, Everton are being far too hasty here.
Yes, things didn’t really work out for Kean – who Marco Silva called ‘fast’ and ‘strong’ – on Merseyside before he joined Paris Saint-Germain on loan.
However, the 21-year-old had to work under an unsettled regime, which saw Silva sacked shortly after he signed the Italian forward.
In Paris, Kean has shone with 18 goals in 39 appearances this season, including a goal against Barcelona inside the Camp Nou.
He has such a bright future, in our view, and Everton would be silly not to give him a chance next term.
You can’t say he hasn’t earned one.
